    paraphrasing of six sentences 2

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to review my paraphrasing of the following using words and word combination from the next sentences?

    1.1. The book was much worse than any of his other books.
    1.2. The book was much inferior to any of his other books.

    2.1. His clothes were spick and span and his behavior tactful.
    2.2. His clothes were immaculate and his behavior discreet (courteous).

    3.1. He is the centre of attention now, though a few years ago he was hardly known.
    3.2. He is in the limelight now, though a few years ago he was hardly known.

    4.1. I must confess that I did not find the story too exciting.
    4.2. I must admit that I did not find the story too exciting.


    5.1. He had taken it for granted that he would help us, but he didn’t.
    5.2. He had assumed that he would help us, but he didn’t.

    6.1. He has gathered a good deal of information for his book.
    6.2. He has accumulated a good dal of information for his book.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards

    Either word would work in this context.
